P Systems Running on a Cluster of Computers
The paper presents a parallel implementation of the membrane systems. We implement the simplest variant of P systems, which however defines the essential features of the membrane systems, and acts as a framework for other variants of P systems with advanced functionalities. The mechanisms used in this implementation could be easily adapted to other versions of P systems with minor changes. The implementation is designed for a cluster of computers; it is written in C++ and it makes use of Message Passing Interface as its communication mechanism.
